On-tap @ Lakefront Brewery/Beer Hall:

Pours reddish amber with medium, beige head. Lacing sticks.

The smell is of citrus with caramel in a red ale style.

The taste is a mix of bitter hops and sweet caramelized malt. It has a bit of a chalky finish.

Smooth overall, though slightly astringent.

It's an enjoyable, hop-forward red ale.

Growler on tap Joe Canals. Pours brown / amber with a medium beige head. Aroma and Taste of toasted caramel malt, earthy hops, mild floral and fruity notes and a bit of toffee flavors. A medium body, smooth going with good carbonation on the palate. Finish is of toasted caramel malt, a lingering toffee flavor with earthy floral hops bitterness. Overall your basic all around amber ale, with a good caramel malt character, smooth and nicely balanced. A good drinking brew.

Fixed Gear is like, totally underground, man. You've probably never heard of a superior combination of hoppy pep with sweet malty goodness. It was a red ale before it was cool. It beats out a neat 6.8% in a Velvet amber mystique - kind of like chillin' out to the B - side of an LCD Soundsystem side-project remix vinyl.
